I was one of a party of three guys. We rang up to book a room with three beds. We were told that wouldn't be an issue. When we arrived, we were faced with a room with a double bed and a single bed. So Mary said we could have a spare room at the same cost (45e per night).... More

We were able to accommodate 5 family members on a short notice. Mary was waiting and welcoming us upon our arrival. The rooms and individual bathrooms were clean. They had wifi and cable television. The Irish breakfast was plentiful and satisfying for a full day outing. We highly recommend!

We arrived late on a Sunday evening and were able to get a room despite not having booked. Lovely room although we had a few problems with the television. Lovely breakfast and a very hospitable host. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Only stayed one night, but a very positive experience. When we arrived, my husband asked Marie about getting tea later. She said she would be happy to make tea for anyone, day or night - and she meant it. Excellent breakfast. The room we stayed in on the first floor was the most spacious we had seen - tons of...

Birchwood is a lovely home, situated on high gound with an excellent view of the surrounding country side. Our rooms were quiet, and comfortable, with everything that we needed. Marie, the hostess, was great, served us tea on arrival, and really made us feel at home. There was a good choice for breakfast, freshly cooked to order. It was lovely... More

We had a good timing chatting with our hosts about everything from cabbages to kings. You can see Tara from the dining room. Breakfast was good, our room was good. Close to town of kells which has some interesting and historic sights. Hope to go back.
